PUT File to WebServer From VB6 Application

Hello All!

I have an application that opens an .XML file located in a /subdir on my webserver.  I then edit / add to this .XML file and would then like to A: Remove or Delete the original file on the WebServer and B: Upload the new file.

Before everybody jumps all over me for my TOTAL lack of XML knowledge,  the reason I don't want to have a web page in place to allow the edit is security.  I only want to be able to edit the XML file through my application.  I've tried the Inet control, but keep getting the 'Unable to connect to remote host'.  Note that I can ftp through IE with no problem.

Thanks for the help!

You can upload to the server with Inet like this:

Call Inet1.Execute("ftp://username:password@127.0.0.1", "PUT /source.txt /destination.txt")

Where "/source.txt" would be the file you're uploading. If you use "/source.txt" it will try to upload "c:\source.txt". So.. to upload "C:\Test\source.bmp" you'd use "/Test/source.bmp". Hope that's understandable. :P
